Back to School buckets

I am so happy to have the Nikki Sivils School is Cool collection to play with, I just love it!  I have a cute little project for you today.  For the past few years I have made my girls some sort of back to school goodie box.  Normally it was just filled with candy/treats like my last years ones which you can see here. This year both girls are headed to high school so I threw in something a bit bigger.  Along with the 'kisses' I have included a gift card for each of them - thus an 'older' version of a goodie bag.  I picked up 4 of these little buckets at a thrift shop for $1 and they were orange so I spray painted them black and just added some decorations to them.  I cut the 2 circles with my Cricut (Plantin Schoolbook) thus making this fit the Fantabulous Cricut challenge.  The crayon is a stamp from The Stamps of Life crayons2stamp set.  Finally tied off with a bit of twine.


This is also for the Cupcake Inspiration challenge:

Finally a couple of other back to school challenges at:  CAS-ual Fridays,  DYSU and CCEE Stampers as well.
